Seeing the window displays filled with bold colors, long layers, and a sign that says “fall sale” may have you feeling like you need a fall fashion closet overhaul. But here is a list of ideas to help save a few pennies while making it appear as if you have a new wardrobe by just adding a few staple pieces to make your fall transition fashion a snap!

Fall Transition Fashion Tips

Tip #1 Denim Jacket

If you don’t already have a well-loved denim jacket, invest in one! My staple jacket is made by Liverpool which is roomy enough in the arms to not feel confined. Throw it on over your dresses, graphic tees, or tank tops.  To complete your look with a fall must have, pair with your favorite pair of boots or booties.

Tip #2 Athleisure Wear

Who can forget about the mom go-to. . . athleisure wear. . . and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Thank the heavens! I recently fell in love with a pair of Zyia high rise seamless leggings which offer the same quality of Lululemon for a fraction of the price and they suck EVERYTHING in. My favorite thing about this trend? Let’s be honest, the ultimate highlight about all of the options for active wear available right now is that if you don’t feel like getting dressed up, you can throw on a pair of workout pants (the ones with the pockets on the side for your phone are life changing for a mama with her hands full), a t-shirt, and your favorite pair of tennis, and you can fool people into thinking, “Oh, she just left the gym.” Can you say fashion mom hack?! I remember when I was a kid and the go-to mom outfit was a wind-suit. I am praying our kids aren’t thinking our “workout gear” is like that! I have to say, apparently the wind-suit is a “thing” again, but I’m not going there.

Tip #3 Tank Tops

Keep tank tops in your closet rotation well into the fall season for while layering cardigans or kimonos over them. You may be surprised with how many kimonos are already living in your closet that you can pair over your favorite tanks. This is perfect fall transition fashion for when it isn’t blistering cold out yet, but chilly enough in the mornings and evenings to have a layering piece.

Tip #4 Graphic Tees

Graphic tees are still on trend and look adorable underneath that denim jacket or blazer. I often hear from my friends that they are afraid to wear their graphic tees with anything other than leggings or jeans, but do not be afraid to pair them with a printed pant that you have in your dresser drawers already!  If you are looking for a fun pair of distressed patched jeans made by Judy Blue and don’t have time or the patience to shop with your kiddos in tow, look no further than RISE Apparel. One of my mom tribe gal pals promotes RISE and the shipping is insanely fast!

Tip #5 Accessories

I tend to be known as the accessory queen, so I will share a few of my best-loved pieces: a chunky mustard scarf goes great over a cozy sweater and if you want to be funky, throw a scarf on over a camo shirt! Top off your look with a necklace along with what I like to call a “bracelet stack”, where I stack five to seven Erimish bracelets together to complete my outfit. There is no rule anymore about having all of your jewelry having to be the same tone – mix and match your gold, silver and rose gold. If you’re looking for a trendy jewelry brand that offers both simple and statement pieces, check out Kendra Scott in Village Pointe. Tip: keep your eyes peeled for sales. If you sign up for their emails, you get a discount code towards your first purchase.

When it comes to fall transition fashion, don’t be afraid to break all the rules. If you can rock it, keep wearing those white pants mama!
